House Republicans First Mistake – Playing On The Democrats’ Field

The House Republicans first day in the minority got off to an inauspicious start via Rep. Liz Cheney’s nomination of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House. Our recommendation is that Rep. Liz Cheney fire whoever wrote the McCarthy nomination speech for her because there was certainly nothing in what she said yesterday that would drive any news cycle.

Assault on America, Day 2: Democrats thumb nose at America by choosing Pelosi as Speaker

Don’t expect Americans to greet “new” Speaker Nancy Pelosi with smiles and embraces. Pelosi hasn’t changed from a decade ago when she was one of the most despised politicians in the country. Lovers of limited government should see her as a worthy antagonist -- and then oppose everything she does.

Assault on America, Day 1: Mitt Romney fires next volley in elitist war on MAGA agenda

#NeverTrumpers like Mitt Romney won’t ever get onboard with the conservative agenda. The swamp dwelling ruling elites are too preoccupied with preserving their own power and playing nice with the opposition to “do the right thing.” Trump will be Trump -- and he’ll win in the end.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrats’ reckoning a safe bet in a certain to be tumultuous 2019

The always festive New Year’s celebrations were the calm before the storm where 2019’s political battles are concerned. 2018’s strife only figures to worsen now that liberals feel empowered to act on their aims. Democrats happily wall themselves off from reality -- an impossibility in 2019.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Prediction -- Democrat excess leads to new and improved Trump in 2019

DC elites were thrown into a tizzy when Trump won two years ago and looked perplexed as he laid out his America First vision during his inaugural address. This refusal to confront the reality of Trump isn’t likely to dissipate when Democrats take power in the House. How’s that for a prediction?

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Will Trump win his own ‘Battle of the Alamo’ even if no one survives?

By now President Trump realizes it’s not fun being in the White House, but nobody ever claimed it'd be easy (except for maybe him). It took decades for the Washington establishment to control government and they won’t be vanquished without a long battle. Trump is up to the job.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Plenty of good reasons why compromise is a dirty word in America today

Talk will continue on possible ways to fix the shattered American political system but in today’s highly divided culture and society, a workable solution doesn’t appear evident. If neither side seems willing to compromise, there are good reasons for it. Conservatives won’t get their hopes up.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Trump’s choice to pull out of Syria a Christmas gift to all Americans

President Trump’s decision to withdraw from Syria will certainly draw more than its share of comment even at this calm (from a news standpoint) time of year. Christmas presents a chance to ponder the concept of peace on earth, goodwill towards men -- never more so than in 2018.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Yes, SNL liberals, It’s a Wonderful Life with President Donald Trump

Life without Donald Trump as president wouldn’t be as clear cut wonderful as liberals would have you think. Saturday Night Live can do all the ridiculous skits in the world and it still doesn’t change the fact we’re living in a complex place and it requires capable people to lead. Trump fits the bill.

Mr. President, Veto McConnell’s Sellout On The Wall

Does McConnell think that Republicans will be in a stronger position to fund the wall in February than they are right now? Having control of the House Democrats will also control a host of procedural tools they can use to erect barriers to the President’s plans to build the wall. Democrats will be in a vastly stronger position to thwart the President in February than they are today.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Weekly Standard demise a lesson for Trump on what NOT to do on wall

Few conservatives will miss Bill Kristol’s The Weekly Standard now that it’s gone. The defunct publication was a glaring example of how not to conduct a successful enterprise; by alienating those inclined to support them, the magazine guaranteed its own demise. Let’s hope the same fate doesn’t befall Trump.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrat oversteps on Trump impeachment will stir populist uprising

When government oversteps its bounds there’s invariably a popular uprising to combat it. Be it the Boston Tea Party in 1773, the modern-day Tea Party movement or this year’s anti-gas tax protests in Paris, the people don’t take it kindly when political elites dictate and condescend.

Democrats’ Disgusting Hypocrisy On The Wall And Border Security

The Democrats’ ever shifting positions on border security and opposition to funding for the border security Wall President Trump promised to build has nothing to do with disagreement on the effectiveness of walls at borders, rather it is a despicable exercise in political hypocrisy in which the only constant is opposition to whatever position President Trump has taken.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Shutdown the Democrats’ inane talk and just fund the wall, Republicans

If Republican ruling elites are truly terrified over Trump’s threat to shutdown the government, they must accept it’s their own inactions that brought on the confrontation. They can use the coming days to salvage a little dignity and give Americans a Christmas gift -- a big beautiful wall protecting them.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Obamacare’s demise is the goose that laid the golden egg for GOP

With the downing of Obamacare last week Republicans now have a golden opportunity to make something worthwhile out of the last days of this lame duck session. With budget talks stalled over the border wall there’s something new to talk about and accomplish if they’ll only take advantage.
